This is a sweet, simple blast from the past.
Sometimes, the greatness of food can be as much about nostalgia as it is about flavor. Frozen Fruit Salad is a classic treat that will transport you back to simpler times. It is also delicious and irresistible. It’s a fruit salad that has been rolled into a sweet, creamy mixture and frozen in sliced form. It is cool and creamy but still allows the fruit’s true flavor to shine through. If you ask me, it has more staying power than its older cousin, the jello.
